We were recommended to eat at Il Brillo Parlante by a friend from Rome. Myself, my parents, and my 4 siblings aged 15-24 ate dinner here on a Sunday night. We had a lovely meal and a wonderful waiter. We ordered great white wine, had some amazing gnocchi, and an incredible filet. They were in no rush to get us... More

This was one of the first places where we eat in Rome and one of the best, the staff was quick and friendly, the place is cozy and the food is good. We had some starters and then pasta and pizza, and they all proved once more why are the Italians famous for this type of food.

I visit Rome with my family. Around touristic places we always have access to many restaurants which for what I am concerned are not offering this goog italian taste that we are always looking for. Despite this we have tried this restaurant near Piazza del Popollo on Via della Fontanella. We did not regret our choice. This was famous and... More

Having lived in Rome for nearly 2 years I should have gone to one of the restaurants that I frequented. The food here was very average, the service was poor-average lacking a knowledge of their wine list and just not a great vibe.

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
